Florida Fruit

Although I am busying myself prepping for the LSAT, which is this coming Saturday, my  husband keeps trying to distract me with some not-so-forbidden fruits.  Two days ago he brought home Ratatouille from the library and yesterday he handed me a sack of citrus.  In the bag were tangelos, tangerines, navel oranges and the humungo ponderosa lemon.  They are all represented in the above pic.
The ponderosa lemon is almost 5 pounds. It’s huge size makes it easily mistaken for a grapefruit, which would be nice, too.   Anyway, although the temptation is there to go crazy with my zester, I am containing my enthusiasm and putting off all jam making until after the LSAT.
What will come of my Florida fruit bounty?  I really couldn’t tell you other than “think small.”   Four ounce jars have been selling well and I continue to receive inquiries asking about what new varieties will be available in petite.  So I promise this: something citrus and something soon.
Thursday (tomorrow) is my last major LSAT prep day.  Friday I cook for My Client.  Saturday I take the LSAT and attend the ballet with my family.  Hopefully in the midst of all this I can cook something yummy for us, since Thanksgiving leftovers are long gone and the cranberry cake and baked stuffed potatoes I made the other night are also distant, digested memories.  My tummy is rumbling, my head is spinning and the clock is ticking.  
Time for bed!
